This Saturday, the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck will be rolling into Albuquerque and settling in the courtyard of ABQ Uptown. The pink pickup will be parked in the courtyard near California Pizza Kitchen from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. 

As part of Sanrio’s debut food related project, the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck made its first trip around the U.S. in 2014. The truck has traveled to more than 80 locations since its debut, and Albuquerque is next on the list. This year Sanrio added 25 locations to their 2019 tour.

The cafe truck will bare a variety of Hello Kitty exclusive goodies including a giant Hello Kitty chef cookie, a Hello Kitty cookie set and a few new items including new t-shirts, plush toys and sequin headbands.

Other fan favorites will also be available for purchase, including a bow-shaped water bottle, a cafe lunch box and the classic cafe t-shirt.

After stopping in Albuquerque, the truck will travel onto Laredo, Texas, giving fans the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck  experience.
